Nuclear Blast Records Joins the PUCK HCKY Custom Sportswear Brand Roster
PUCK HCKY (www.puckhcky.com) – the custom hockey apparel brand dominating music merchandise – have recently partnered with an exciting mix of artists, such as Snoop Dogg(who recently sported his PUCK HCKY brand hat on Jimmy Kimmel Live), Testament, Overkill, Exodus and Gruesome. Today, PUCK HCKY is thrilled to announce their collaboration with premier metal label Nuclear Blast Records!
The Nuclear Blast Records “Fiercely Independent” collection continues the 30-Year Anniversary celebration for the legendary label in a fun and unexpected way. Hockey and heavy metal music are a well-known match made on ice, and when PUCK HCKY took the classic Nuclear Blast Records logo stylings along with adding some brand-new touches, the collection was born. On the classic side, the Metalcore jersey fully reps Nuclear Blast in both design and colorway. While the new Mushroom Cloud jersey design brings an entirely different vibe to the collection. The namesake Fiercely Independent design is available on a variety of items, and pay special attention to the little details within the designs as PUCK HCKY has left a couple surprises for the true Nuclear Blast Records connoisseur!
Matt Marini, CEO of PUCK HCKY says: “First and foremost, PUCK HCKY wants to congratulate Nuclear Blast Records on a great 30 years! What makes the collection click is that Nuclear Blast has an international roster of artists that are hockey fans. PUCK HCKY currently has collaborations with Nuclear Blast artists Overkill, Testament, Exodus, and Meshuggah will be coming soon – so we just loved the idea of flipping the script and signing the record label!”
Gerardo Martinez adds: “A great number of Nuclear Blast artist’s over the years have shown their tremendous love and admiration for hockey. It’s their passion and a lifestyle and love besides heavy metal. We are thrilled to partner up with PUCK HCKY and continue our 30 years celebration!”
